Our physical self is always healing itself. Always! There can be no reasonable or legitimate denying of this very simple fact. When something, anything, affects our body it will immediately begin to heal. We are always in a natural state of healing. Always! With Reiki we have a conscious intention of this healing. Reiki is a heightened state of awareness and acceptance of this healing. Reiki is an energy healing modality, a healing of intent, which is comfortably aligned with the most basic laws of the universe and the natural world.
Energy is everything and everywhere. It reacts with our bodies internally and externally. This is not a new concept. Most Eastern systems of medicine have always been based on these ideas.
All matter is simply slow moving energy. Einstein stated that all matter, energy, time, and space are relative to each other. These elements are also directly related and affected by the presence of a human observer. Any experiment will always be affected by the presence, attitude, and intention of the experimenter.
With Reiki we choose an intention of healing. It is an attitude that expects the total wellness of the whole self. This includes all aspects of the physical, mental, and spiritual self.
